Episode #53 The Voice Pendulum, Stop the Swinging!

Episode #52 The Voice is Like a Pendulum, Stop Swinging!

Welcome to the show!

Today I'm talking about the voice and how it's like a pendulum.

Over the last 25 years, as I've been coaching voices, I've seen this time and time again.

We tend to swing one way and then the other. We are loud and someone criticizes us so we swing to quiet. That's just one example of what we do with our voice and how we swing.

It's essential that we stop the swinging and find the balance. I talk about this a little bit in my episode on core 5 but today, I'm stopping the madness.

Find the balance on all fronts and really step into what true voice power is!

Episode #49 Regulate Your Voice, Control the Room

Welcome to the show!

I'm really excited about this episode because this is the icing on your cake. We've spent a lot of time on foundation elements in previous podcasts like getting the sound out clearly, breathing and patterns. But today, we get to the really fun stuff. Bringing the words to life with your voice!

When you regulate your voice you become the conductor of the vocal orchestra. You decide when you are rolling in each of the 5 elements of variety and as you control your voice, you control how the orchestra is played and in turn, captivate and touch our emotions through your unpredictability.

So many people have been working on this with me lately and it's really THE game changer that catapult's your success.

Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear from you and help you with your voice so you make a HUGE impact in 2017!
